Celebrating Five Years with CADD Microsystems

Last week marked my fifth anniversary at CADD Microsystems. The last five years have been amazing in so many ways, and I am absolutely thrilled to see what the next five will include! Something that impressed me well before I ever joined the team at CADD was the many community-based events they host for their customers.

CADD sponsored events like the Revit DC and Revit RVA user groups have seen attendance in the hundreds. Next week, I will present at another one of CADD's signature community-based events named Tech Tour. My presentations will encompass many infrastructure topics including; Master Planning Design Concepts, Transportation Planning and Design, and Grounded Collaboration between Architects and Civil Engineers. During those presentations, I'll share how to use tools like Civil 3D, Map 3D, Revit, Navisworks, and InfraWorks in tandem to solve common planning and design challenges.

Those who live or work near Washington DC, Baltimore, MD, or Richmond, VA can learn more about Tech Tour and register for the event on the CADD Microsystems website.

Whilst the reach of Tech Tours and user groups are limited by geography, something that's not limited by geography is the internet. It's for that reason CADD has also built CADD Community for its customers. With CADD Community, customers get the benefit of the knowledge shared at events like Tech Tour PLUS the industries best on-demand training through our partnership with Global eTraining. Those interested in learning more about CADD Community can learn more on the CADD Microsystems website.

Ask me anything at the All About AutoCAD CADD Chat

Just last week (September 20th) I celebrated my fourth anniversary at CADD Microsystems. During my first week at CADD I recall our CEO asked me to sign a copy of my book AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT: No Experience Required. While I’m not sure if the autograph increased the value of the book any, I do remember signing the book by stating how impressed I was by the expertise possessed by each of my then new colleagues. Over the last four years, I feel like I have learned as much from my colleagues as I have had the opportunity to share with them. That fluid exchange of information is one of my favorite things about working at CADD.

I've always wished that unscripted exchange of information was something our customers could experience first-hand. Thanks to the marvels of modern technology, it is something our team has found a way to share. Next week you can step into the digital hallway of CADD Microsystems, and experience what it’s like to bounce ideas off some of the most talented experts I have ever known.

On Wednesday, October 1, 2014 we’re hosting what we’ve chosen to call a CADD Chat All About AutoCAD. The CADD Chat is being hosted by my colleague Daron Moore who is both an AutoCAD expert and Autodesk Instructor of the Year, and I will be participating as a co-host. The presentation itself has no script, and will be entirely driven by your questions.

We would love to have you join us if you have some time next Wednesday. You can register for the (free) event on my company’s website. And if you already know what you would like to ask you can even submit your questions in advance (link on the registration page below).
